Trust me, I'm Australian and if it was truely public domain then it would be released by Aussie budget DVD companies. It's the most popular Australian TV series of 60's, there is no way it could be PD.

You are right.

Copyright In Australian TV still lasts for 50 years (copyright wasn't extended to 70 years) So these uploads are about 10 years early. These episodes officially hit the public domain 12:00am 1 January 2019.
